Monique's Scrapstars Album



I looked after my great nephew Ethan today, when i say great nephew I always add "that makes me sound about 150, but I'm not honest". As we drove along we played "yellow car, yes" you got it, you see a yellow car and you say "yellow car yes" (random huh).






Last night I managed to finish (well apart from photo's) my Monique album from Scrapstars. I decided to bind the book as my pages seemed to slide about (probably something I was doing wrong). So I used the cropodile to punch holes and then threaded ribbon or cord through the three sets of holes and tied them in tight bows. I then put a couple of small stitches through the bows so that they couldn't come undone. I threaded my embellishments on to embroidery thread and tied them, but then added them to the spine by stitching them on but letting them hang loose. I hope you can see what I mean ..... and I hope that you like it.
